Welcome

Hi, I’m Nicky - blogger, writer and photographer forever feeding a nature obsession.

I’m a forest dweller who can mostly be found topping up the feeders in my garden bird feeding station, lying prone identifying cliff-top wildflowers or performing night-time shenanigans with a net trying to identify moths but, above all, I’m never ever to be found without a camera or my too-curious-by-far labradoodle cross (crossed with what we're not sure!), Bess.

This blog is a place where I can share the enjoyment of sunrises and sunsets, mountains, meadows and marshes, seashores and skies, woods and wildlife. It’s also about lifestyle, issues, news, art, literature, music, events…if it has a nature theme then why not?

I live, write and record nature.

Welcome to Nicky by Nature.
